Wyoming

Since nobody’s offering predictions (there are no polls) for Wyoming, here’s one (based on very little, to be honest):

1) Romney

2) Thompson

3) Huckabee

4) Paul

p.s. there are 12 delegates at stake

here comes McCain

Finally someone’s saying that Chuckabee’s victory over Romney in Iowa might favour McCain rather than Giuliani. If Romney loses in NH, he is out. And if Romney loses in NH, he loses to McCain. So, with Romney out and Huckabee unelectable, who’s left? Only McCain, who would be coming off a win in NH; and Giuliani, who came sixth in Iowa and might perform similarly in the next three or four states. Not too difficult to guess who would be the clear favourite then.

Will anyone vote McCain?

McCain appears to have realized that the Republican nomination cannot be a contest for best right-wing liberal; so the Senator is leaving that corner to Giuliani, and he’ll try to behave as (if not be) a proper conservative. So, we learn from Liberal Values, McCain now is definitely against abortion (he hasn’t always been), and he’s willing for creationism to be taught in school (he didn’t use to be). Overtaking Giuliani on the right is his only way to win the Republican nomination, but the problem for McCain is there’s plenty of proper conservative candidates already there: they haven’t got any chance to win, but they reduce the number of votes McCain can gain from moving to the right. Evangelicals will spot a sinner all-right. And there will be more Evangelicals among conservatives voting for the primaries than there will be among conservatives voting for the Presidential elections. So McCain’s stuck: those who don’t mind a liberal-leaning Republican candidate, and one that can get elected, will vote Giuliani. And those who do mind a liberal-leaning Republican candidate, will not vote McCain. So where is the Senator from Arizona gonna get his votes?
